As the crisis surrounding Ukraine intensifies hour by hour and the Anglo-American powers posture themselves as defenders of Ukrainian rights - which they themselves have clearly violated with the recent program of destabilization and overthrow of the Ukrainian government - the Russian side moves forward with what it claims is the necessary and proper methods of protecting Russian interests.
As the crisis continues to unfold, the presentation of the facts, particularly on the part of the Western media is not surprisingly skewed and inaccurate. Indeed, the attempts to paint Russia, whatever its faults, as an imperialist aggressor marching toward world domination have reached farcical levels.
Most bizarre, of course, might be the laughable statement recently made by Skull and Bones John Kerry. In an interview with Meet the Press’ David Gregory, Kerry stated “You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext.” He also went on to say “You just don’t invade another country on phony pretext in order to assert your interests.”
